CoD: Black Ops Cold War Split-Screen Lag | How to fix local co-op multiplayer

Black Ops Cold War split-screen lag

Couch co-op isn’t as common as it once was, so, while players are happy to see it in Black Ops Cold War, they’re less excited about its implementation. Issues with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War split-screen not working have been occurring since launch. With some players going so far as to call the local multiplayer “broken,” a CoD: Black Ops Cold War split-screen patch can’t arrive soon enough.

Call of Duty publisher Activision is aware of the Black Ops Cold War split-screen lag and crashing errors. The team is currently “investigating” reports from players encountering frequent split-screen issues, so, hopefully, a game update to address them will be released soon.

Unfortunately, there’s no workaround or temporary fix for users to utilize in the meantime. Players looking to enjoy Black Ops Cold War split-screen to the fullest will need to wait on the upcoming patch. Although it’s not the best news, at least the developers are aware of these problems and actively squashing them.

Those looking for a smoother Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War split-screen experience aren’t alone in waiting on an update. Disappearing 2XP Tokens, lost weapon progress, and missing CoD Points are all known issues that players are waiting on fixes for. That’s without accounting for additional issues like constant freezing and endless loading screens.
